Personally, I gel the inner baffle. I just cut a strip the right size and use paper clips or clothesline clips.

I've seen other guys tape a dome of gel right around the tube inside the box, too, but that way isn't as quick to change.

I use gaffers tape to tape the gel to the sides between the inner baffle and the light.

you still get the color adjustment your looking for with it being inside the box as opposed to outside?

Yeah, the white baffle and face don't influence the color much unless they are very old and yellow.
